Meet the Author

In 1927, Mazo de la Roche was an impoverished writer in Toronto when she won a $10,000 prize from the American magazine Atlantic Monthly for her novel Jalna. It became an immediate bestseller. She went on to publish sixteen novels in the popular series, about a Canadian family named Whiteoak living in a house called Jalna. She created unforgettable characters who come to life for her readers, but was secretive about her own life and tried to escape the public attention fame brought.

    Enjoyable reading

    I am re-reading The Jalna series and enjoying it as much as 50 years ago. Delightful story.

    Fell in love with this epic story of the Whiteoak Family

    This has become my go to series when I just want a comfort book. It was so much fun watching this family thru the years and seeing all the personalities develop and the family dynamics. I think Mazo de la Roche wrote a very captivating series.
